XC - How do I shift the gears on my bike?

The XC is equipped with an 8-speed manual shifter, so you can shift gears just as you would on a regular bike. Use the thumb and forefinger of your right hand to operate the two gear shift levers located on the underside of the handlebar next to the right handlebar grip, to select a gear – the lower the number, the easier it is to pedal.

 

Always shift gears while pedaling the bike and never move the shifter while pedaling backward, nor pedal backwards immediately after having moved the shifter.
